  15. Sorroz and myself felt the need to get out again and so we decided to take a mate that hadn't been out to Browns or done much in the way of out wide New years day looked good so .... 6.30am at the ramp and off through Botany Bay we go heading straight to Browns to start the morning As the saying goes "Where the bloody hell are you" we were the lone ranger for a good hour until we finally saw 2 more boats that were on the troll plan was to drift Browns and then go for a troll well 5 drifts for 3 orange roughies and a green eyed shark plus 2 drop weighs lighter and our mated being a fair bit lighter in the stomach after a berley session that we advise was fairly usless considering the depth we were fishing we figured it was time to go everything packed away out can the the weapons of choice 4 x 15 kg TLD's and set the lures port long Uzi in Evil short a Red christmas tree then a Halco gold trembler on the long and Lumo Uzi on the short corner all set we head to the south east in some of the cleanest blue water we have seen for a while even though the temp varied around 21*C then we found them ....... a school of Dollies when all of a sudden the the long corner Evil explodes into blue and yellow mayhem seasick who's seasick we get our mate on the rod and start to pull in the other lines only to find the we have a double and I'm on the with the Red Christmas tree firmly planted in Dollie number 2 this leaves Sorroz to pull in the other rods and get the gaff, sorry skipper too slow while Kev is guiding Gus on how to control the fish and get it in I continue to bring in my fish get it to the side of the boat after the over under dance around the deck when the lines crossed Capt Kev hits the gaff home and one Dolly is in the boat ........... oh by the way Gus watch out for the tail as they tend to trash around, this lead to me trying to wrestle it into submission with a towel while sliding around on a bloody deck and laughing each time the tail slapped someones leg with the fish subdued and Gus concentrating hard they had the fish close a couple of times only to have it turn and run again while moving the rods out of the way I noticed the birdsnest on my reel and thought drop it over the side and untangle it well just as I found the knot and was unpicking it we found that the school was still around, you guessed it they liked my Christmas tree so much I was on again the boys finally got Gus's fish in with a perfect gaff shot and then we turned to my second one I didn't know wether to watch my next fish or Gus wrestle his, lucky it was pretty well tired out and dispatched quickly so I turned mine and watched it give some aerial action before anothe rperfect gaff shot and into the boat so it was Gus 1 Chris 2 and Kev thanked for his assistance out with the tarp and packed the fish and ice all wrapped up into the cab 1.30pm turned and said so Kev we heading home only to be greeted with I haven't got a fish between the rod jumper and you so get the spread out again we troll all the way back to near the wide FAD for nothing and with the wind picking up we decided to run for home and called it a day 3 x Dollies all around the 110cm size all cows left us wondering how big the bull would have been Happy New Year ...... oh yes it is
